Need a website designed that will feature the following:
A news feed that we (webmaster) can add to on an ongoing (many times a day basis) with articles and links to other sites. The user should be able to filter the news feed by topic by selecting certain topics it will only display news stories relating to that/those selected topic.
A section which will include blog entries and unique articles and interviews. Again the user should be able to filter based on choosing certain topics.
On the side of the welcome page should be our twitter feed.
There should be a calendar which will list events on any given day and again should be filter-able by the user by selecting certain topics.
The user should be able to log on as a guest and log on as a return user. If they create a user profile they will need to provide name/address/email/ create a unique user ID and password. If they log on as themselves their selections will be remembered. They will also be allowed to post comments to the news feed stories.
This will be a site in which people in predetermined fields can log on to get ongoing information about those fields, in particular government information (i.e. when relevant meetings or conferences are taking place). The first two topics will be "defense and transportation" and "renewable energy". Other than filtering between those two, users should be allowed to search by federal and each state, which more filtering available later on.
The site will be updated daily by at least two separate webmasters.
